I like it. One of those pure Garcia moments that make people like you and me spend considerable amounts of our time listening to this guy that's been dead for like 15 years.

Sometimes I wonder how far that magic smile will be beamed into the future. Jerry's eternal soul is secure, this we know, but what about the legacy of the music? Will the GD be forgotten, then someone unearths a box of old concert recordings, and *Bam* it's classical music?

Sometimes I feel a strong need to put my 75-gig GD/Jerry/Phil collection onto a hard drive, put it into a box, seal it with the toughest duct tape ever, then bury it in the ground, for this express purpose.

I say this, listening to a crystal-clear absolutely beautiful MTX of 10-01-94's sock-rockin' Scarlet Fire. It's just exactly perfect.

Zaorish: Do you have the DVD of that 10-01-94 Boston show?

ganges: THANK YOU! Needless to say, I have been swimming in some strange, deep, dark waters for the past couple of years. I regret I lost touch with my old friend in the Black Forest. I will do my best to be in touch soon but, for now, please accept my gratitude for your faithful friendship.

Please say "Hello" to your family for me. Any prayers will be greatly appreciated.... got lots of bad news regarding my body last year -- worst thing is that it prevented me from keeping in touch with friends such as you.

Sending some Light from Boston to the Black Forest,
--- AshesRising

HeLives: Thank you for your inquiry --- well, at least I am no longer bed-ridden for weeks/months at a time so I am guess I am doing great.

I don't have the strength to go walking after midnight like the good ol' days so I need to use my automobile to get around (at least, before it gets repossessed in the near future).

I found a cemetery on the outskirts of Boston where the Gatekeeper leaves the gates open at night. Much to my surprise and delight I discovered a family of five deer that hang-out --- creatures of the dark --- comrades (as you know). I play lots of music for them. Considering the setting -- a cemetery -- I figured that the "Grateful Dead" would be appropriate. They really, really appreciated the first tune I ever played for them: "Space > Comes A Time" from a June 1991 show that Arbuthnot sent me a long time ago. Unfortunately I really, really freaked them out with a selection from "One from the Vault" (thanks to "elbow1126" for that great gift!!!) "Blues for Allah > Sand Castles & Glass Camels > Unusual Occurrences in the Desert." When I finally returned to my auto from tripping through the universe during that selection I noticed that the younger deer were walking in circles (seriously) -- I felt really bad about it -- I tried to restore their sanity with the classic "Help on the Way > Slipknot! > Franklin's Tower" from the same show but, alas, they were too far gone.

I learned a good lesson that moonless midnight, but the good news is that I have since restored their faith in me with lots of phenomenal material. Last night (actually early this morning around 3:00am ET, I introduced them to the "Jerry Garcia Band:" "Stir It Up" from 1977!!! They loved it.

I apologize for the long, rambling post to a very short question. The meds had kicked-in so I figured I should take advantage of the short window of opportunity to respond. That window is now closing/crashing so I shall once again bid you adieu.

Needless to say, I hope/pray that you are doing well,
--- AshesRising

That is perfectly worded. I was standing in my kitchen listening and I know I had the biggest smile on my face as he wrapped up the tune.

It's hard to understand why some people don't "get it." I don't know, maybe it's better that way...

off topic...I'm a big setlist guy and for a while I wanted to get into the Dec 1996 Oakland show you just reviewed. The setlist is really crazy with a ton of Playin jams. Overall I usually see this show rated as average or not held in that high regard which has delayed my listening to this point. I saw you gave it a great review. based on the setlist I want to check it out but let me know some other thoughts.

Sorry for not getting back sooner. I like this show 1. because I have a soft spot for mid 80s shows; and 2. because I love (read really love) these 80s shows where it's obvious that they're basing the performance around Playin'.

I hope you enjoyed.
